1998 Lincoln Continental Q&A

1998 Lincoln Continental Question: overheating

my car is overheating we changed the thermostat and flushed it and the water pump was changed last year and its not circulating and the big fan that blows the radiator is not running is that the problem -
Answer 1
If the fan isn't running when the engine is at operating temperature, then you may have a bad fan motor. Check to see if the fan moor is getting a power signal to operate, and if not, why not. If it has power and it's not working, check the ground wire and replace the motor if both the power and ground are OK. -

Its only one fan which is the big fan but is that why the antifreeze wont flow -
